Almost all my city shots are in my home town Portland, OR.  I hope to see some other cities out there :)

The biggest challenge for me is location.  Hard to get good roof access on some of those tall buildings.

My home town Oslo, capital of Norway, is intimately linked to the seascape of the Oslo Fjord. One cannot envision the one without the other.

The view of the city from the fjord also provides the appropriate setting against the surrounding hills and the profile of the Holmenkollen Olympic Ski Jump.

Bergen by night.
This is the second largest city in Norway and its citizens regard it as so special they claim "they don't come from Norway, they come from Bergen". At least their language and peculiar grammar support this notion.

Bjørn, the placement of the entertaining boats is nice.  Did you take the image with D2X when we had the meet-up?
